3820 or 3930K - Page 11  

post #101 of 143
tox0rs is so damn right. Just talkinge sense, I highly recommend to go for 1155 2500K then update to Ivy which is for HIS needs. Since buying new GPU(s) is no subject here, I'll leave it at that. Duo 460GTX are nice anyways. You can update them when 6XX and 7XXX are out.

btw, what the heck is going on here? people joking about another ones rigs? since when are we at this point of immaturity? everyone tries himself to get the best out of their amount of money they can spend. not everyone staples notes to throw out on overpriced products. I personally dont judge such wasters. I just tell or ask them why they didnt do this instead of that. seriously...

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/...vs_460_1gb_sli

faster then a single 580 for half the money. makes no sense to spend 450-500 on a 580 when fermi is on its way out. much rather spend 400 on a new kepler card and sli down the road.

i donno why every one is talking so much **** on the 460.

i am building a enthusist level system. ivy is not that. the 3930k will be a hell of an overclocker and excel in multitasking. which i do HEAVILY. so games dont use 6 cores.... YET.

Wait a second... you refuse to buy old components in the form of cpu's, but do exactly that with your gpu? contradicting yourself here my friend.

You also talk about building an anthusiast level rig, yet you keep stating you don't wanna spend any more money than you have to, hense why you got the 400 series gpu's.

Be sensible and pick up the 2500k, if it truely is only for gaming why argue the matter?

Case: HAF 922
Cooling: H100
Processor: 3930k
Mobo: Rampage IV X79
Ram: Vengeance 4x4gb 1600mhz
PSU: OCZ 1000W
GPU: SLI PNY XLR8 GTX460 1gb

sounds like a solid platform with much much room to grow.

flame all you want. it is very solid setup.

Don't buy based on that mate. I remember a few years back everyone saying get the Q6600 because games will tqake advantage of 4 cores soon. It's taken a long time for games to take advantage of quad cores and TBH most games still cannot harness the power of Quad cores. By the time 6 cores are supported haswell will be out.

When you want to buy a cpu for gaming one of the most important things is IPC. Sandy Bridge and SB-E will have an almost identical IPC. The i7 3930K is a waste of money for games however if you wish to waste your money be my guest

The 3820 is a terrible choice. Look at the price, a slightly overclock 2500k would wipe the floor with it. And for gaming as said above you don't need a 6 core. So depending on what you want to spend get a 2700k or 2500k and o.c that chip to the limits... [edit: woops changed back]

Edit: Just reading above, even if games use 6 cores it wouldn't matter one bit!! -They are more GPU bound.

im not. im buying based on this.... Multitasking. i said that right before.
post #110 of 143
Well I'll just post according OP, later on saying you are going to multitask lowers plausibility about your postings. Enthusiast doesnt always mean its good. Intel says 2500K is performance and 2600K is enthusiast which I cannot comprehend, since adding cores doesnt make CPU an enthusiast one. Please correct me if I am wrong with this.

Well then. I'll just correct me to fit your needs: go for 2600K/2700K and update later on to Ivy. Still my opinion to give you, SBE is not as good as the combination to get a 2600/2700 now and of upgrading to Ivy later on. The chipset on 2011 is as well overrated.
